Electronic Task Monitoring and Training Assistance

Droplet is a little button that you push after you have done something. That button sends a pre-programmed message that crosses it off your (or someone else's) list, or else alerts them that something has just happened  

Fail to push the button, and it sends you -- or someone else -- a text message that says something was not done.

Sounds like a small thing, but it's a genius training tool, and also a confidence builder that your pet-sitter is actually feeding and walking Fido twice a day, as promised, and that Timmy is cleaning out the rabbit cage twice a week, as promised.

The single greatest problem humans have is lack of consistency.

We fail to take our medication every day, we fail to walk and train our dogs, and we ignore the backyard until a farm combine is needed instead of a suburban lawnmower.

In this increasingly busy and frenetic world, we are going to be using more robots to do our chores, and we are going to need more electronic prompts to keep everything running on the rails.

This is a Kickstarter campaign that has raised $64,000 of its $80,000 goal with 17 days to go. This will happen.

It needs a correction device for those who push the button without having completed the task. Of course, that is not something I would ever do,
